Future Predictions, Take 7

Number Seven: Television.

Revenues to the networks are down dramatically. Not just because of the economy. People are watching TV and movies streamed from their computers. And they're playing games and doing all lots of other things that take up the time that used to be spent watching TV. Prime time shows have degenerated down to lower than the lowest common denominator. Cable rates are skyrocketing and commercials run about every 4 minutes and 30 seconds. I say good riddance to most of it It's time for the cable companies to be put out of our misery. Let the people choose what they want to watch online and through Netflix.

**Just yesterday a friend of mine predicted at video rental shops like Blockbuster will no longer exist as such.  People will want to buy their movies on disk, but I predict a time when we'll buy a "box" that will store all our movies, much like burning songs onto a disk.  Think of it as a Kindle for video viewing.**
